    have you looked at the data sheets for each of them ?

    if so what were the ratings namely the PIV and current handling of each ?

    Going by the datasheets both have equal reverse voltage ranging from 50v to 1000v

    However the UF2008 has a forward current of 2 amps , and UF 5408 has a forward current of 3 amps

    Hence you can replace UF2008 with UF 5408
